IPhoto notification - 06/06/13 06:15 PM

I keep the iPhoto icon on the dock--and for some reason it shows a notification message. Like this:



So what is that all about? I can't figure out what the notification is about!! And I can't get rid of it. And it's driving me crazy. Crazy, I say--CRAZY!!!

There was a recent update to iPhoto but that should appear in the app store icon. Maybe its confused? Just a wild guess that is probably wrong.

Something to do with Photostream and shared photo comment notifications I think.

But I don't use photostream and don't do shared photos! AAAAAAIIIIIIEEEEEEE . . . CRAZY!!!

Seriously, though, I hate it when the computer does something that I don't control.

Check everything in Photostream in iPhoto preferences. Quit iPhoto. Relaunch and uncheck everything, quit. Relaunch.

Pray.

You have nothing set up in Accounts in iPhoto preferences?

iPhoto is at version 9.4.3?

The only thing I have in the accounts is my mac.com email. Photostream is not turned on--nothing is checked in that preference pane. And yep, it's 9.4.3

Checkmark everything in Photostream, quit, relaunch, and uncheck it like I mentioned above, sometimes that will kickstart things.

Delete your mac.com account too.

That did it! You're a genius, Jim--no reboot required.

No problem. IMO the knowledge I share with you is fungible to the new words I learn every other time you post. grin

The thought process was I knew that the app badge was related to Photostream, and I know that many times choosing and un-choosing settings fixes things, so let's try that sized hammer
